Taiwan’s Dazzling Cherry Blossom Trees Light Up at Night


If you’d like to visit Taiwan, may we suggest that you go during the month of February so that you can witness this incredible sight? Held annually since 2001, the Aboriginal Cherry Blossom Festival brings together a large number of visitors to the Formosan Aboriginal Culture Village to see their 2,000 cherry blossom trees. While viewing them during the day would be spectacular enough, stick around till night and you’re in for an amazing treat.

Using a special “light carving” technique, the trees come alive with light that ranges in color and brightness. With lamplights on each cherry tree, visitors are hit with stunning night scenes. As photographer Claire Chao states, “The light show went on from 6pm to 8pm, along with very tranquil/relaxing background music! The best part of the game is to guess what colors of lights would appear during my each and every exposure.”
